Book three in the Pete, Drinker of Blood series!
While Pete worries about Christmas shopping for the first time since 1972, trouble-making vampire Christopher Greeley rolls back into Hollywood, looking for a taste of the greasy magic power that now courses through Pete’s bloodstream – a power Pete’s not even sure he wants. It might control his hunger for blood, but the side effects may vary, including accidentally summoning ravenous, building-destroying monsters.
A mysterious figure from the past could hold the key to controlling those side effects, but first he wants Pete to acquire a powerful greasy magic artifact (through less-than-lawful means, of course). And to top things off, Pete keeps stumbling into the leadership role, and the other vampires would be happy to keep him there. Looks like Pete’s hopes for some quiet time with his human girlfriend, Angie, are going to have to wait – again.
Join Pete as he strives to overcome evil and answer the question: How does a guy live a normal life when he’s not quite dead?
If you dig Mercy Thompson, Harry Dresden, or Sandman Slim and you’re looking for a fun new urban fantasy series, check out Pete as he struggles to survive undeath on the streets of Hollywood! Titles include Pete, Drinker of Blood, Doorchick of Darkness, Pete Has Risen from the Grave, Taste the Blood of Pete, The Room-Temperature Warrior, and more coming soon!
From the author: I’m a big fan of classic bloodsucking vampires including B-movie vampires, but I also enjoy humorous looks at what it would be like to be an ‘everyday’ vampire, like in What We Do in the Shadows. How does a vampire without a big spooky castle just get through the day – uh, night? That’s what l like to explore in the Pete books. After working in a video store for years and then running my own video store for more years, I’ve seen thousands of b-movies – and written reviews for many of them, which led to my review collection Unsafe on Any Screen. Working in filmmaking in both the Hollywood and indie worlds influenced my novel Squirrel Eyes. I’ve met a lot of vampires during all of this, and it got me thinking about what it would be like to be an average guy who just happened to be a vampire.
In Taste the Blood of Pete, reluctant vampire Pete learns the true hazards of the greasy magic, dips a toe into burglary, and faces the anxiety of choosing the perfect Christmas gift for his human girlfriend Angie – a fun listen for fans of humorous urban fantasy.
